Stumble out of bed. Rush the kids to school. Work long hours. Dodge negative news. Pay the bills. Figure out dinner. And then, wake up the next day to do it all over again. If you’re well acquainted with this to-do list, congratulations. You have joined the ranks of millions of hard-working Americans (and, well, everyone in the modern working world) who are constantly bombarded by life’s daily stresses. But when was the last time you took stock of yourself? How do you feel? What can you do to feel better?
It may seem like mental health is a trendy catchphrase these days. But believe it or not, National Mental Health Awareness Month was first established in 1949. It was founded in America to highlight the importance of mental health, recognize how it impacts our lives, and celebrate recovery from mental illness. We’ve come a long way since then.
Everyone benefits from good mental health. According to scientific research, engaging with original art is like a mini-mental vacation! Soothe your mind right now with these beautiful miniature art pieces. We can’t stop gazing at them!
Important announcement! Stop everything and look at this stunning landscape. Would you believe that it’s only 3½ inches small? That’s because it’s a miniature oil painting. Even at this size, the details are magnificent down to the last blade of grass. Its natural beauty is a feast for the mind.
Get ready to be transported to the rolling hills of Italy in this beautiful mini oil painting. Land of fine food, famous landmarks, and Mediterannean weather, one can’t go wrong getting carried away on an imaginative culinary adventure. We can smell the pasta sauce already.
Soft silky cats relaxing on comfy porch swings are the ultimate stress reliever. Thanks to the convenience of this adorable miniature acrylic painting, you can have that stress relief anytime. Think of it as the luxurious version of a stress ball, only it’s much more fun to look at.
Let’s admit it. We all wish we could escape to a remote cabin in the woods at some point in our lives. Bathed in the soft colors of sunset, this beautiful color pencil mini shows the perfect place to camp out for an evening retreat. Or a week. Maybe a month. How about forever?
Do you know what’s even better than a remote log cabin? Spending a balmy day at the beach in the Outer Banks! This gorgeous mini color pencil drawing is like having a piece of pocket paradise. The calm ocean waters have such amazing detail! Whether you’re here on the beach or not, there is no doubt that your mind is in for a coastal retreat no matter where you are.
